Enter the world of Anglo-Saxon Northumbria at Jarrow Hall

Jarrow, South Tyneside, Tyne and Wear

Discover the incredible story of Anglo-Saxon Northumbria and the extraordinary life of the Venerable Bede.

The museum is dedicated to exploring the fascinating legacy of the Venerable Bede, one of the greatest scholars in history.  It is from the surrounding area that he wrote his widely circulated and influential commentaries and calculations.

The reconstructed farm is home to a collection of fantastic rare breed animals, such as curly-coated pigs, Dexter bullocks and sheep, along with replica Anglo-Saxon buildings.

Head next door to visit St Paul’s Church and Monastic Site, where you can marvel at the church’s chancel that dates from the time of Bede 1300 years ago, before exploring the remains of the later built monastery.
